COLLEGE WRITING ESSENTIALS
Rhetoric, Readings, Research Guide, and Handbook

PENGUIN ACADEMICS
Compact but complete–and always at a reasonable price!

For more than 60 years, instructors and their students have looked to Penguin trade paperbacks for state-of-the-art scholarship, accessibility, and fair prices. Longman, Penguin’s sister company, aims to meet those same expectations with textbooks in our Penguin Academics series.

We’ve created the Penguin Academics series with ease of use in mind. Concise yet thorough in their coverage of the basics, Penguin Academics titles are ideal for use either by themselves or in combination with other books.

College Writing Essentials: Rhetoric, Readings, Research Guide, and Handbook by Harvey S. Wiener is the first brief rhetorically organized writing guide of its kind. Prewriting, drafting, revising, and research writing receive thorough and complete coverage, but only the most frequently taught methods of development–description, example, process, comparison and contrast, cause and effect, and argument–are included. Coverage of these methods of development is comprehensive, but the least frequently assigned methods have been eliminated. You benefit from essential content at a reasonable price.

Among other features, you will find in College Writing Essentials:

  • Over 25 student essays–one third of which are annotated to help you recognize the decisions other student writers have made.
  • More than 40 professional selections–which include classic and contemporary essays, photographs, cartoons, and Web sites–providing you with content for response as well as models for using different rhetorical strategies in your own papers.
  • Argument writing prompts, “Having Your Say,” that ask you to consider a high-interest or controversial topic and argue your position. These prompts appear throughout the text–not just in an argument chapter–so that you can strengthen argumentation skills throughout the course.
  • Coverage of essay exams, research, source-based writing, literary analysis, and style.
